Creating an Alpine package
This document assumes that you have a working build environment, or use a diskbased alpine installation.
The aports tree
Installing and configuring the alpine-sdk
The alpine-sdk is a metapackage that pulls in the most essinsial packages used to build new packages. To install those packages:
apk add alpine-sdk
The aports tree is in git so before we can clone the aports tree we need to install and configure git. We need to tell git our name and email.
git config --global user.name "Your Full Name" git config --global user.email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Now we can clone the aports tree.
git clone git://dev.alpinelinux.org/aports
